For quite a while now, we’ve been talking about the two different Snow White movies set to hit theaters in 2012. There’s Snow White and the Huntsman, which stars Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, and Chris Hemsworth. And then there’s the other Snow White movie, which is directed by Tarsem Singh, and stars Lily Collins, Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer. Until today, the latter project was without a title.
Relativity Media has announced that the film will be called Mirror Mirror.
The decision to go without “Snow White” in the title is probably a wise one. Despite the fact that Mirror Mirror will hit theaters months before Snow White and the Huntsman, it’s not a bad idea to distinguish this one a bit more by its title, and “Mirror, mirror...” is certainly a recognizable phrase for anyone familiar with Snow White’s story. This is how the Queen addresses her magic mirror. Will these words be spoken by Julia Roberts at some point during the film?
Mirror Mirror follows Snow White as she teams up with “seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright.” Based on the photos we’ve seen from the film, this movie seems to be aiming toward a more colorful, storybook look than what we should probably expect from Snow White and the Huntsman, which hits theaters three months after Mirror Mirror.
Mirror, Mirror releases in theaters on March 16, 2012. What do you think of the title? Love it or hate it?
